3.20.13 … Proverbial frog in boiling water … ouch … Happy First Day of Spring! …

“Solvitur  Ambulando” – It is solved by walking, 2013 Lenten labyrinth walks,  Myers Park Baptist Church – Charlotte NC, Marthame Sanders,  i feast therefore i am: 

Am I the proverbial frog in boiling water? Am I doing things, staying places because I have slowly become used to them even though they are not good for me?
Today was absolutely gorgeous and as I drove to Myers Park Baptist Church, I noticed that the Bradford pear trees are out in full. Interestingly, I also noticed that many of the Charlotte yards owners are waiting to begin  planting for spring. Maybe because Easter is early.  It is only those that are for sale or whose  homeowners  have a true love for gardening that are in a beautiful state at this point.
 As I pulled up to the circle that is near the labyrinth, I noticed that it is full of cars, which is unusual. People are jockeying to get around the Stop  Hunger Now truck. I also noticed that it is 60° and 4:45 PM.

From one of my favorite bloggers …

Like the proverbial frog in boiling water, we might not even realize it when it happens to us. Are we really trapped? Or are there choices we make that trap us: mixing up our priorities, confusing what we want with what we need, our inability to say “no”?

May we see the Christ in others; may we trust in God’s abundance; and may we rest in the presence of the Spirit. What is Jesus’ prayer for you today?
